Afghan projects coming up

| No Comments

Last week, I offered to make a woman at work an afghan if she bought the yarn, and another woman asked me to make her an afghan if she bought the yarn. These two projects will keep me busy when the college is closed for Winter Break! This week, each woman selected an afghan pattern from the 2 large binders full of afghan pattern books I brought for them to review.

Today, I ordered 14 skeins of Lion Brand Homespun in Covered Bridge (red), Deco (creamy white), and Montana Sky (blue) from the Jo-Ann Fabrics website (yarn on sale and 20% discount off total!) for Corinne's Courthouse Steps afghan which will be larger than lap size.

Deb wants to match colors to her living room, so she'll buy the yarn herself for the Twists & Turns afghan she selected.

It is interesting to observe the process each person goes through when reviewing pattern books: At first overwhelmed by all the choices, then settling into searching, then discovering their "style" preference, then possibilities abound, then narrow down to a few, and then...and then...narrow... The one!
